Eclipse 2017 (Aug 21st):
Article describing NAU student’s and faculty’s observations during the partial solar eclipse that occurred on Aug 21st:
Shear awesomeness in this one, as this article talks about NAU’s Science and Engineering Day (Sept. 23rd). This coincides with the Annual Flagstaff Festival of Science (Sept 22nd – Oct. 1st).
2 days until NAU kicks off the 2017 season at UofA! Go Jacks!!!
Just in case you are thinking that there’s no way the Jacks can take down the Cats, I found the above article, which, although it doesn’t involve either team, and NMSU is (technically) a FBS football program, shows that upsets do happen.
The second article is a little closer to home. It talks about NAU’s upset of UNLV (FBS football team) in 2012.
Huge upsets can happen. Go Jacks!!!
The Lady Jacks took down Canyon University 1-0, and will face the Detroit Titans tomorrow, and Nevada on Sunday. Go Jacks!!!
Volleyball started the season (and the Miami Best Western Sycamore Inn Invitational) off strong with a victory (3-2) over Southern Illinois, but then dropped 2 straight to Western Kentucky (0-3) and Miami, Oh (1-3). Tomorrow, they will begin the Hampton Inn Jackrabbit Invitational in Brookings, SD against Valparaiso (Fri), CSU Bakersfield (Sat) and South Dakota St (Sat). Go Jacks!!!!
2 days until the Defending NCAA Champions begin their title defense at the George Kyte Classic in Flagstaff. Go Jacks!!!
